Shop While You Charge: Consumers and Retailers Are Plugging In – NYTimes.com

Ikea
Ikea’s Portland, Ore., store is one of 16 locations where it offers E.V. charging in the parking lot.
Brian Wynne, president of the Electric Drive Transportation Association, recently drove his Chevrolet Volt to a dinner date with his wife at Stone’s Cove Kitbar in Herndon, Va. Nothing unusual about that, but Mr. Wynne was parked and on his way in when his wife pointed out that he could have plugged the Volt into the restaurant’s E.V. charger. It’s right out front.

“I think this kind of public charging, at restaurants, retail stores, malls, movie theaters and coffee shops, is going very well,” Mr. Wynne said in an interview. “Walgreens, Starbucks, Whole Foods, they’re all E.V.-friendly. The owners want to attract people to their stores, which is terrific. And you often encounter chargers in places that surprise you.”
